I am not a foodie, so wherever I go, I don’t even bother about eating foods! For me Coffee and Muffin would be enough to survive. But I am sure you get hungry when you travel! Cox’s Bazar has a lot of options but mostly people doesn’t know where to go…so for them I did a small research. You can actually walk to the city center, beach areas and find restaurants everywhere.
Breakfast & Coffee: There are not so many cafes in Cox’s Bazar but two of them offers really good coffee and breakfast. Salt & Café 14 offers cosy environment with amazing coffee.
Lunch Time: During lunch time, finding sea food won’t be a good option. Because you will find only Bangladeshi food like (Vorta, Vaji, Vegetables, Meat/ Chicken/ Mutton Curry, Daal, Fish Curry or Fry). Also, the restaurants offer Khichuri (Yellow Rice), Biriyani (Chicken/ Mutton/ Beef) for lunch time. Better try some fish fry like (Rupchada, Elish, Boyal, Telapia and options in the menu).
Sea Food: If you stay in the center, you can walk to the Sungondha Beach and can find sea food shops. You can choose fish, crab, squid and they can grill or fry for you. You can only get those after 6:30 PM 11:30 PM. They will charge for each item you will select from the display.
Kabab: You can only find Kebab between late afternoon to evening hours in roadside restaurants in the city.
KFC: If you are running out of time, you must go to KFC that will serve you quick food.
Mermaid Eco Resort: If you are interested to enjoy dinner with a cosy environment you must try this place. The place is far from the center but you can hire an auto that will cost 400 to 500 BDT for taking you there. If you want you can hire the auto for coming back that will cost you the same amount. Mermaid authority have their own auto service that costs the same amount to coming back to Cox’s bazar. You just have to inform the guards that you need an auto to go back to the city. Since the area is a bit calm and peaceful, it would be a wise decision if you come back to city by 9:30 to 10PM. Also, better take a CNG not an Auto for coming back because the vehicle is faster and stronger. Foods is mermaid is a bit expensive than the other restaurants, so please ask and go through the menu properly before you order. It takes time to serve foods, so better you plan your time accordingly.
But still you can write me!
